ANALYSIS/OPINION:

A “peace treaty” between President Trump and “Glorious Leader” Kim Jong-un that ignores the human rights abuses in North Korea is meaningless. That issue must be addressed in any talks of peace.

The plight of physically tortured political “criminals” in prison camps must be exposed for all the world to see. The brutality and oppression of that totalitarian regime must be exposed. North Korean defectors, including Ji Seong-ho, agree that Mr. Kim needs to be brought before the International Criminal Court (ICC).

With all the talk of “denuclearization” these days, ignoring the daily reality of oppression and torture that many North Koreans suffer makes any treaty or truce an empty sham.
